As part of my NY resolution to suck less*, I want to get into the habit of reading again. Who's read anything good recently?
In terms of what I do and don't like, I don't like pretty much everything - anything by Dan Brown (obviously), anything to do with crime, anything that's set in ancient times, anything that isn't intelligently written. I like sci-fi but nothing too out-there (oxymoron possibly).
Books I remember enjoying - small sample only:
Anything by Tom Robbins
Anything by Neal Stephenson
Anything by Will Self except Butt
Anything by Michael Marshall Smith
Anything by Glen Duncan
Most stuff by Bret Easton Ellis
Gateway by Frederik Pohl - terrifyingly I think this was the last book I read, and I even remember when - 2008
That really doesn't give you much to go on, does it. Basically it has to give my brain a medium-size workout but not be a slog - think Gravity's Rainbow by Pynchon for something that's a little too much to be enjoyable.
Basically - if you can buy it in an airport, I probably won't like it.
Off you go.
* proving to be surprisingly difficult unfortunately
